Possibly inspired by Patrick Carney’s brilliant Bieber trolling expedition (Or perhaps perpetrated by Carney himself working on behalf of McDonald’s?!), Burger King’s Twitter account got hacked today and was turned into a McDonald’s Twitter account.
The hacker posted tweets that Burger King had been sold to McDonald’s and the account had been taken over by McDonald’s employees. “We just got sold to McDonalds! Look for McDonalds in a hood near you @DFNCTSC,” the hacker tweeted at 12:01 p.m. ET. @DFNCTSC is likely an account set up by the hacker. Several of the posts used obscenities or racial epithets.
For over an hour minutes the feed was filled with photos and videos making fun of Burger King. “We caught one of our employees in the bathroom doing this….” one of the tweets said. Along with it was a photo of a man injecting a syringe into his arm.
If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear this was the work of Tracy Morgan.
Thanks for the tip, JP!
